6-26.

A line with slope

passes through the point (−12, 16). Homework Help ✎ What is an equation of the line?

What is the

*x-*intercept of the line?

Remember that the formula for the equation of a line is

*y* = *mx* + *b*.

Substitute the slope for *m*. Then, substitute the given point for *x* and *y*, respectively.

Solve for *b*.

Substitute 0 for *y* in the equation from part (a).
